Why is the renewal price almost doubling at checkout?

Hello 

I have just finished a Halo2 contract (in Feb) and want to arrange a Full Fibre 500 package at £39.99 a month.  When I log in with my account details, and go to checkout it says Full Fibre 500 £64.99 and I CANNOT change it. 

As per usual I cannot get through to BT, chat doesn't work and there is no way of sorting this so I am just becoming more and more frustrated.  The app is pointless as you can't set this up on the app either.  

Please can anyone help?  Why is the price £39.99 showing as £64.99 for an existing customer? 

Thank you 
Sarah

Are you keeping the halo add on? Are you keeping the ability to make/receive calls on your home phone?  The price you are quoting is broadband only

I don't want to keep the Halo add on but I cannot see anywhere that says to remove it.  I have just selected Full Fibre 500 at £39.99 and £5 pay as you go calls - I don't want anything else just the broadband and the £5 call package but on checkout it says £66.99. 

I assumed the current package would just cancel since it is out of contract and I am renewing?

Thank you so much.

Hi @scottielands   As an existing customer, you will never get a new customer price (they already have you). Especially, if you have Halo. They seem extremely reluctant to take it off once you have it. I had to leave and order another ISP (you have to really mean it) before BT offered a package (without Halo) with the same speed at half the price that I was paying.

Thank you - I have read this online, people saying that BT won't release you from Halo.  ABSOLUTELY not having that - I will happily leave if this is the case.  Thank you for the advice.

Hi @scottielands   It is interesting, in my "special" offers, I can now add Halo to my package and only pay 120% more!

120% more so (100+120) 220% of the original price?

 

*So looking into this I'm being offered BT TV Pro at a price that would make long-time subscribers cry!


I only learn by making mistakes and owning up to them - boy do I learn a lot!

Hi @Crimliar 

Sorry, I grossly underestimated the increase. The actual "Online Exclusive"  is 196% more or 296% of the current price. This was the package I was on before.
